AbstractSpecifications for designs and installations of drainage pipes in Ontario are provided in various Ontario Provincial Standards (OPS). These specifications (OPSS) represent the best practice and have been widely and successfully used in Ontario. However, like most other specifications on buried pipe, the OPSS are based on the Marston-Spangler theory for earth loads in trench and embankment installations. The recent development of the direct design method for rigid concrete pipe and its bedding systems - Standard Installations Direct Design (SIDD) method - has not been incorporated in the OPSS. There is a pressing need to review and update the relevant specifications and drawings on rigid concrete pipe in OPS so that cost-effective designs and installations can be achieved.
